Week 1- Goals for Fall Quarter
September 19, 2011 § Leave a comment
Friday was our first group meeting for the ASL project this year. In addition to meeting the new people on the project and getting an overview of the current status of the project as a whole, Allison, Professor Wolfe, and I started laying out a plan for what we would like to accomplish this year.
We would like to be able to animate our avatar, Paula’s lower body and torso in order to synthesize ASL verb agreement and storyteller mode. Currently the model of Paula’s pants is a mess of odd shaped polygons that would be difficult to work with. Therefore our first order of business is to remodel her pants so they will be easier to work with. To start with we are going to find some references, since the current pants are pleated and would be complex to re-model.
